Rosewill RX81-CW-US-SLV eSATA/USB 3.5
February 05, 2008

The Rosewill brand name can be found on a wide variety of computer components, including over two dozen hard drive enclosures. They seem to have an enclosure for just about all common drive sizes and interfaces, with configurations to meet the needs of just about any user. This review is going to take a look at one of their newer models, the RX81-CW-US-SLV, an enclosure designed for a 3.5" SATA hard drive that connects via eSATA and USB 2.0.

The RX81-CW-US-SLV is shown in the promotional image above, and the first impression is a good one, as it has an attractive, understated appearance that would look good in just about any home or office setting. Before taking a look at the RX81-CW-US-SLV eSATA/USB 3.5" drive enclosure provided for review, let's take a look at some published data taken from the Rosewill website...
